relatable digital design artist problems

Hello!! Welcome back to maggie’s doodles πŸ’œ I hope you’re having a beautiful day!

So I thought of the PERFECT post to share today! 😍 I don’t know why this idea never crossed my mind before now, lol.

The title says it all: I’m writing about relatable digital design artist problems! πŸ™ŒπŸ’–

Getting to create art is an awesome experience, and digital design is no different. It’s rewarding, satisfying, and exciting! Just like with other art forms, however, there are perks and downsides to the whole experience. I’ll be writing about some of the struggles I’ve encountered and endured (πŸ˜‚) over the years as a digital designer myself. It’s all in good humor! Hopefully we can laugh through the pain and keep on creating πŸ€£πŸ‘πŸ’•πŸ’•

Me and digital design go waaaaay back. πŸ§“ lol we’re talkin’ 2010!! I have eleven years’ worth of digital designer experience to draw from haha, which is what I’ll be doing in this series πŸ˜‰ (yup, I’ve already come up with enough problems to write a second and eventually third post!)

I hope you love this series! It’s been hilarious to write and I can’t wait for you to check out the first round of relatable problems below.

Let’s go! πŸ‘‰

relatable digital design artist problems

When you leave the design app to check something, or put your phone down to do something, or when you go to save your creation, and then tHE APP CRASHES πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‚

When your hand starts hurting from too much awesome creative work haha

When you have a bunch of apps on your phone and/or design websites saved that you haven’t even tried out yet (but the potential is so exciting haha)

When the font you want to use… is locked (NUUUUU)

When certain feature/s within an app or website get broken (but there’s not an update available so apparently they’re messed up forever πŸ™ƒ)

When you can’t quite! πŸ‘ get! πŸ‘ the design! πŸ‘ right! πŸ‘

When the finished design is way too small to use anywhere 😐 (like 300×300πŸ’€teehee)

When your friends who aren’t digital design artists don’t understand what you’re going through (*collective sigh of misery* haha)

When you’re tryna edit a photo then you notice you’re running out of charge! Then the mad dash for the charging cord πŸ”Œ bahaha

Yaaay thank you SO much for reading! It’s been a while since I was this excited about a post series, and I can’t wait to continue with it πŸ˜πŸ’œβœ¨

  2. I took graphic design in college, but didn’t enjoy it too much. However, I still use the methods I’ve learned on my own personal projects, including party invitations. I can also relate to my hands hurting from too much digital design use, or even a lot of typing.
